Anyone know if removing the headers from a Gutenberg text is OK?
airlik has pretty well said what I would have. I'd only add that removing the Gutenberg preface and
distributing it would basically be like claiming credit for the work, bad bull, but I don't see any problem with stripping it for my personal use, and the last time I read the stuff, I didn't think they'd be too upset with it either.
I used to clear it when I was reading on my Palm, because it's, like 73 of those pages, but on the Reader I've just left it 'cause it's only 2~3 -- click, click, click. Just easier to leave it now, in my opinion.
